The Share a Ride system: Easy way to beat uber and lyft

The share a ride system is simple.  It can be anything but preferably an app.  This app would keep track of rides and/or miles and/or time that you give rides and recieve rides. Everyone starts with a set number of credits, it could be zero.  You gain more credits by giving people rides, and you use up credits by recieving rides.  The credits could be the same internationally or differ based on what nation or area or city you are in and could require a conversion, but preferably stay constant worldwide.  There could be other ways to trade credits too, perhaps with other similar apps like delivery apps etc.  So if one person for example doesn't have a car to give rides, he could do something else to earn points or credits to use in getting rides.  Preferably credits would not be tradable or convertable for real money.  Also preferably points could not be minable by computers.  The point here is to bypass the need for money or proof of work besides the actual work bieng done by giving rides.  A use case for this is someone planning a vacation to miami in march.  They could give a few rides in california, their home, and build up points.  Then they fly to miami, don't bring their car, and catch rides using the points they earned back home.  The downsides are it is a centralized system and as such it can fail at any time so users wouldn't want to bank an uneccesarily high amount of points.  The upside is you can earn rides by giving rides and not need to use money at all.
